So I moved and I had to take down my multi tank system, and I picked up a Red Sea Reefer 250.

Equipment:
2-AI hydra 26.
2-Jebao wave makers
Ecotech Vectra S2 return pump
Bubble-Magus Curve 5 Elite skimer
Advantage 2000 8Watt UV Sterilizer ran off Sicce Syncra Silent 1.0
Jebao dose pump 4
Inkbird temp controller
Marine Pure MP2C-c media 1 Gal

Going to add more stuff as I go but I will be starting the cycle tomorrow once the temp is up. building A control board to mount all the gear and hide the wire just in the painting progress right now.

So stoked for how it turned out going to take my time with this one and take the cycle real slow and the lights will be off for quite some time.

anywho just thought I would share my new build.

Looks great!....but I think you should lower that picture above it to create the optical illusion of one continuous underwater scene.
Yeah thanks for the idea I like it better

Very nice setup! Like the way the lights highlight the lower part of the background picture! Almost seems like it’s part of the tank! How did you do that?

So this is the start of my control board. My only complaint so far is I am running out of space in my sump and needed to move my heater to the main display. Anyone have any suggestions on smaller profile heaters that would be around 200 watts?

@KevPool I like your controller board. Is it going in the cabinet?
aye it is a good fit and cleans it up nice. still in the middle of the cycle but it is coming along nice my ammonia is down to 0.8 from 2.0 the other day. still have to figure out the lighting schedule I want to run but things are coming along slowly.

@KevPool which InkBird is that? If it’s the Wi-Fi can you tell me how you got it running? I’ve got both Wi-Fi and BRS pre-Wi-Fi. The former is really strange and has an alarm when running properly and would go off on my phone in the middle of the night. Couldn’t figure out how to get that alarm turned off so running non-Wi-Fi, much easier.
